Urban Graphics in Singapore – A Guided Tour

Architectural lettering/signing and graphics that are visible to the public eye seek to grab our attention even as we traverse an urbanscape already chock-full of signs and symbols. Organized by Orita Sinclair School of DesignUrban Graphics in Singapore is a 3-hour walking tour, the focus of which lies in site-specific applications of typography and lettering. Most of the signage that will be perused is, like many ill-considered items, broken. The tour will also be exploring the nexus between static or moving images and architecture. Participants will come away better able read the urbanscape and its graphic elements and perhaps critically evaluate what works well and why. And if it doesn’t work, how else could it have been done?

Your tour leader is Vikas Bhatt Kailankaje. Formally trained in architecture, Vikas is the founder of STUDIO VBK, a collaborative platform for projects requiring print design, copywriting and research on design and architectural subjects. Vikas is also actively engaged in teaching as a Part-time Tutor at the National University of Singapore and as a Part-time Lecturer at Orita Sinclair School of Design, New Media & the Arts.

Urban Graphics in Singapore is happening on 13 October at 2:30 pm. The tour is free of charge and open to all age groups. Kindly RSVP to charlene@orita-sinclair.edu.sg. Tour Start Point is at Orita Sinclair School of Design, 12A Pahang Street (map). Come prepared to walk with comfortable footwear, and bring an umbrella (in case it rains).
